Dr. Fotuhi is the Founder and Chief Medical Officer of the NeurExpand Brain Center. He has established the first science-based multidisciplinary program devoted to helping people of all ages improve their memory and prevent Alzheimer’s disease, with an emphasis on expanding the brain size.
Dr. Fotuhi received his medical degree (cum laude) from Harvard Medical School and his PhD doctorate in neurosciences from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Fotuhi’s initial clinical research at Johns Hopkins focused on finding effective ways to prevent dementia. His recent research on the effects of aging on the brain has shown that baby-boomers and elderly can indeed increase the size of their hippocampus, the part of brain that is critical for short term memory – in a matter of weeks.
Dr. Fotuhi has dedicated much of his career to educating the public about issues related to memory and aging. He has been the visiting professor and keynote speaker for conferences around the globe in China, Japan, Canada, Israel and Europe. His two earlier books on how to enhance memory and brain performance were featured in a national PBS program called “Fight Alzheimer’s Early.” Dr. Fotuhi’s third book, Boost Your Brain, summarizes the scientific basis of programs at his NeurExapnd Brain Center. He has been interviewed and featured in Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Discovery Channel, Forbes, USA Today, and The Dr. Oz Show.
Dr. Fotuhi has been a popular lecturer at both Johns Hopkins and Harvard Medical School for 25 years. He is the recipient of the American Academy of Neurology Teaching Award and numerous other awards for his contributions to the field of brain science and Alzheimer’s research.
